The JCU Summer School for Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students

The Summer School conducts pre-programs for prospective Indigenous school leavers  who are seeking to gain entry into JCU in 2024. It is run over a five-day period during the school holidays and is taught by the Indigenous Education and Research Centre (IERC). The focus is to build capabilities in Math, English, Chemistry and tertiary study skills. IERC staff run the program and supervise academic and recreational activities, with the help of Indigenous Student Ambassadors at JCU. The students will live on campus and take part in academic lectures and team-building activities. This interaction provides opportunities to meet Ƶ staff and students and form bonds with other students in the program.

JCU covers all costs associated with the program, including travel to and from Townsville, accommodation and catering costs for participants. Successful applicants travelling from outside the Townsville region have the option to stay at the Saints Residential College on campus and will be fully supervised at all times. On-campus accommodation allows for a complete university experience!
